Light Pimento Cheese Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2014
Was looking for a spin on an old favorite...homemade. This is made with the crud you buy and then you add my favorite food on earth, cottage cheese so I tried it just to say I did...a waste of cottage cheese. The store bought stuff has trans fat in it so just avoid this one.

I used store-bought pimiento cheese spread to make this. I would suggest you buy the best tasting pimiento cheese the store has to offer. I also put it on my homemade Amish White Bread. Personally, I would have given it 3 stars because the pickle relish seemed to overpower it. My husband, on the other hand, actually liked it. He said it was tangy and more flavorful than regular pimiento cheese.

I gave this 3 stars because it's way less flavorful than what I think of as pimento cheese. I think I did improve it by blending the cottage cheese before mixing it into the shredded Velveeta. btw I shred my own, but it does come shredded and packaged. And instead of pickle relish I used actual pimentos! Go figure. It's definitely a low calorie version of the traditional pimento cheese, as that uses mayo or miracle whip!

Store bought pimento cheese is NASTY! It is made with imitation cheese, whatever that is. Please just make some homemade pimento cheese. It only has a few ingredients. 8 oz. grated cheddar, enough mayo to moisten, a good squirt of lemon juice,cayenne pepper to taste and a jar of chopped pimento,drained. Mix well and chill. Homemade and delicious!!!!!!

I used that process cheese food they have and added my own olives. I think it worked. But I never did like processed cheese so that is a prerequisite here. Good combo and great instructions though.
